Allegis Cuts Workforce
According to the Baltimore Sun, Allegis Group Inc., the worlds largest privately owned provider of staffing services, says it has laid off 10% of its 10,000-staff U.S. work force, including 80 workers in Maryland.
Neil Mann, executive vice president at Allegis, said the job cuts in Maryland were mostly at its Hanover headquarters, affecting back-office functions. "We're affected by our clients' financial world, and the recession hits them, and it tends to hit us," Mann said.
Allegis is made up of a group of staffing companies, including Aerotek, TEKsystems, Stephen James Associates, MarketSource and Allegis Group Services. Allegis focuses on employment recruiting for accounting and finance, banking, human resources, and sales and marketing.
